Cameron Diaz And Benji Madden Engaged: Report
Us Weekly says “multiple sources” have confirmed that couple is set to wed. Rumors of an engagement have heated up in recent weeks, with Diaz wearing a ring on her engagement finger, though her camp has been mum about the speculation. One Us Weekly source says of the two planning to wed after a 7-month romance, “Everyone thinks it’s wild but are so happy for them.”
Diaz and Madden began dating this spring after being set up by Nicole Richie, who is wed to Madden’s twin brother, Joel. While the couple has yet to talk about their relationship or even walk a red carpet together, they haven’t shied away from showing affection in public.
Diaz has previously expressed a disinterest in getting married, with the topic coming up in a number of interviews over the years. Back in 2011, the actress told Maxim she thought marriage was a dying institution, explaining, “I don’t think we should live our lives in relationships based off old traditions that don’t suit our world any longer.” And as Gossip Cop reported earlier this year, Diaz questioned the concept of monogamy in her InStyle cover story.
This would be the first marriage for both stars. Gossip Cop is continuing to investigate, and will have updates.
